At its Wednesday meeting, the Kendall County Board approved a call Center professional Services agreement with TeleDirect for $30,000.

TeleDirect operators will answer COVID-19 questions for the county.

The original cost on the county board agenda was $20,000, but board member Matt Kellogg amended the motion to raise the amount to $30,000.  County Administrator Scott Koeppel will be able to charge up to $30,000 on the county's credit card when the call volume increases.

Koeppel explained how the TeleDirect call center works.

County Board Chairman Scott Gryder said having the call center will make a difference.

Kendall County Health Department Executive Director RaeAnn VanGundy said that just under 4,000 vaccines were administered in the county last week.

In other business, the county board approved a settlement in the amount of $2,500 for all claims in the case of Timothy Wisnauski vs. Kendall County.

Sheriff Dwight Baird explained.

Wisnauski was arrested in May of 2016 and charged with robbing the Oswego Food Mart in April.
